Energy medicine helps people balance their inner energy and may help awaken their ability to improve their overall well-being. Vibrational or energy healing is the practice of aligning the powerful energy of the Universe with our internal restorative frequencies to create harmony within our bodies. Energy healing sessions use gentle ways to help balance a person's energy field and accelerate the healing of the body, mind, and spirit. Healing Touch, Reiki, Flower Essence, and Craniosacral Therapy are therapeutic healing techniques that have been part of many cultures for centuries. Energy healing assists in transforming the frequency of the body's energetic centers to improve overall health, mental clarity, and relaxation.
CST is a gentle, hands-on method of evaluating and enhancing the functioning of a physiological body system called the craniosacral system – comprised of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord. Using a soft touch, practitioners release restrictions in the craniosacral system to improve the functioning of the central nervous system. By complementing the body’s natural healing processes, CST is used as a preventive health measure for its ability to bolster resistance to disease, and is effective for a wide range of medical problems associated with chronic pain, emotional difficulties, stress and tension related conditions, neck and back pain, headaches, Chronic Fatigue, and Fibromyalgia. The light touch of CranioSacral Therapy also integrates seamlessly with hands-on qigong (energy work) and gentle activation of acupuncture points through acupressure. These techniques work together as powerful modalities of vibrational medicine. CranioSacral Therapy, qigong, and acupressure are offered as a stand-alone treatment, or as an enhancement to an acupuncture session.
The Usui Reiki System is a Japanese Healing Art. It is a system of working with reiki energy to heal the self and others. It is passed on from one person to another through initiation, teachings, and practices. Usui Reiki addresses the whole person on physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual levels. The word “Reiki” means “mysterious atmosphere, miraculous sign.” It comes from the Japanese words “rei,” meaning universal, and “ki,” meaning life energy. It’s based on an Eastern medical belief that living beings have energy fields that support their health and vitality.
Energy blocks impede the natural flow of energy, causing health problems and adverse life circumstances like financial troubles or relationship problems. Reiki treatments consist of laying the practitioner’s hands on the patient’s body in a prescribed pattern and allowing the energy of life to flow through their hands. The Usui System of Reiki balances and strengthens the physical body’s health, enhances relaxation, and nourishes the mind. It accelerates any healing process from acute conditions to chronic illness and emotional imbalances.
Essential Oil Acupressure
Essential Oil Acupressure (EOA) involves the application of specific organic essential oils over acupuncture points to promote energetic changes and restore balance and well-being. As energetically active as acupuncture points, essential oils can be used in place of needles for a gentle yet therapeutic effect. EOA can be used in conjunction with reiki or cranio-sacral therapy particularly for children and the elderly or to enhance the effects of acupuncture treatments. By treating the mental and emotional roots to physical illnesses, EOA can be used to address a variety of conditions such as fatigue, stress, anxiety, depression, irritable bowel syndrome, hormonal imbalance, thyroid disorders, premenstrual syndrome, menstrual pain and menstrual irregularities.
Dreamwork, sometimes thought of as "dream interpretation," is offered at Revive Qi by acupuncturist Leilani Wong Navar. Dreams are expressions from our most profound sources of knowing, and reflect where we're at and what we need on many levels: physical health, emotional healing, creativity, spiritual life, community, ecology, and more. Leilani describes dreamwork as her favorite route to the deeper levels of healing. She has been weaving the wisdom from patients' dreams into their Chinese Medicine treatments for more than 10 years. Sometimes quite practical and specific, and at other times full of emotion and mystery, there is nothing that quite compares to the insight, inspiration and connection dreamwork can bring.
In a dreamwork session, you'll share a dream to explore and discover what the dream is bringing you. You and Leilani will engage your dream with curiosity, body-awareness, intuition and attention to your life stories and symbols, until you arrive at the rich truths - or the new questions - that are waiting for you. This is an opportunity to release stagnation in yourself that's ready to move (whether at the level of body, mind, spirit, emotions, or other), and connect to new possibility.
